“Nobody wants to be friends with the girl with a boyfriend.” Except The F-Word‘s main dude, Wallace(Daniel Radcliffe). Feeling sorry for himself and living with his sister after dropping out of medical school, Wallace is being mopey and creating anti-love magnetic poetry about town.

A gathering of makers, thinkers, and doers, The Spareparts Community is made up of fine folks who contribute to a creative atmosphere in their cities.
